The wooden stocking used as the base for this hanging decoration was found in a sale bin a couple of years ago. Good quality scrapbooking paper was pasted on both the front and back of the stocking and then a white top and toe in a gently embossed card was added to the front side. The trees, snowman, holly and snowflakes were all die cuts; glitter and sparkling red gems were added, along with a pompom trim.
: We ensured any paper overlapping the edges of the stocking was filed down with an emery board, then the edges were inked and aged with light brown ink. The final touch was the ‘stitching’ with a thin dark red pen along the edges of the white card.
There was something missing though…….our popular 1mm red hemp cord for hanging the stocking up!
